At last, great Greek food

Very Greek farther and son run restaurant near the start of the strip, the type of place we’d been looking for – good Greek food without the frills, good service and friendly attitude with inside/outside options. Was recommended by some new friends we made during our stay. We were made very... read more

Our first experience of downtown Protaras. Everything was first class, from the free bread and extensive range of dips, through starters and main courses. We had the Pork Fillet Diana and Pork Belly - both were delicious and the free dips (taramasalata etc.) were over and above the average. Disappointingly for the owners, it was very quiet the night we... More

We had a 5 day holiday in Protaras, our flight got in very late and the owner invited us in to drink with him and his private party. We went back a few times over the 5 days, the food was some of the nicest i have had, no where else in the area compared. The stuffed calamari was a... More

We first discovered this restaurant in September 2013, and when we returned to Cyprus the following year in August 2014, despite being half-board at our hotel, could not wait to go back on more than one occasion of the holiday. The staff were so friendly and recognised us immediately which was nice. We ordered the steak everytime, apart from one... More

On a recent visit last October with my wife and son, the choice of meals was enhanced by the offer of a house speciality - one they would be putting on a new menu. Delicious!

My wife loves Molti, but for me the Olympus ticks all the boxes every time. This is at the far end of the strip in the Fig Tree Bay area. Service is excellent food great and reasonably priced. They also retain the old tradition of offering you a drink on the house whilst the formalities of paying the bill are... More

We found this restaurant on our first evening in Protaras and went every night for the ten days we were there. It is a family run restaurant and both family and employees are most welcoming, and attentive. The food was consistently good and there is is a good variety on the menu. Father welcomes you into the restaurant where you... More
